Mike Booth memorial rock to be unveiled Sept. 3

A memorial rock honoring the life and service of longtime Schuylerville CSD Board of Education member Mike Booth will be unveiled Friday, Sept. 3 at 6:20 p.m. outside of Black Horse Stadium. The unveiling and dedication will be held prior to the first home football game of the 2021 fall season.

Booth was a board member for 18 years. During his tenure, he was a champion for students, and was known for his passion, advocacy and pride for the district.

Booth graduated from Schuylerville Central School District in 1981 and immediately entered the Air Force, where he served with distinction for four years in the military’s law enforcement division. He was elected to Schuylerville’s Board of Education in 2001, serving 18 years on the Board, including six years as president and two years as vice president. As the owner of Booth Oil Company, he shared his knowledge and insights on budgeting with his fellow board members, while prioritizing opportunities for students and advocating for long-standing Schuylerville traditions, such as the sixth grade Camp Chingachgook trip. Booth passed away in September 2019 after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is survived by his wife, Kelly, and their three sons: Mike, Steven and Nate.

Those wishing to attend the memorial rock unveiling and dedication can gather outside of the entrance to Black Horse Stadium beginning at 6:10 p.m. The district looks forward to honoring the life of Mike Booth and the impact he left on our students, faculty and staff.
